Modernization Pleasure Craft Licensing Program

Transport Canada and the Office of Boating Safety has outlined several recommendations pertaining to the Pleasure Craft Boaters Card and boat licencing.

We commented on this very important consultation on January 15th, 2021. Transport Canada’s Fee modernization initiative outlines amendments to the small vessel regulations, fee proposals, competencies, and rationale.

The boaters card system is in need of an update to ensure all operators have the knowledge and skills to safely operate any kind of powered boat.

The MLA has responded with our own letter supporting the changes proposed by Transport Canada with some of our own requests. You can view it below.
